1997 BMW M3 - Consumer Discussions

All BMW M3 Models

at a 1997 BMW that is being advertized as an M3, But it says that there is an automatic transmission in it. I could see on the pictures that it only has a Single Exhaust. I was under the impression t...

I had a 1997 E36 M3 (US), which I absolutely adored. That car was my first BMW, and the torque added a huge amount of confidence on the hills of San Francisco as compared to the Acura Integra GS-R I ...

about like say the current E46 Convertible or M3, now those are truly "good looking" with no excuses needed about color or wheels size. The interior without the idrive/nav setup looks incre...

I got the sport, premium Pkg, better wheels, xenon, premium stereo, heated seats etc with a $46 sticker. I am probably not the typical X3 targeted buyer since I own a 2002M3 convertible and a 2003 M3 ...

Would sideview mirrors from an 01 and up M3 fit on an E39 1997-2003? I have priced 01 M5 mirrors and they are about 1200 for both sides as opposed to 500 for 01 M3 mirrors.Any help would be greatly ap...

it toggles. This is my third M vehicle (1997 M3, 2000 M5, 2006 M6) and it is by far the most complicated. But I've spent more time in it at the track than any other BMW and it's also the only BMW tha...

Sorry, but you got hosed, plain and simple. I hope the service manager kissed you and sent flowers the next morning. My local dealer doesn't charge that much more for an Insp. II on an E46 M3- which ...

Yes, it's a nice car for the price. I'm halfway looking for an E30-E46 to use for my work hack. I found a very clean low mileage 1997 M3 sedan-only the blasted thing has a slushbox. Grrrrr.... :mad:...

We found a 1997 M3 with 138,500 miles on it that we are very interested in purchasing. This would be our 3rd car & more of a project car than a daily driver. The seller agreed to take it to a BM...
